About us

Be the first to visit the Fair on the Festive First Night, when the Christmas festivities officially begin on 15 November. Things will kick off with the official light switch-on, when the bright warm glow of the lights will bring colour to the city and its landmarks.

With the festivities start at 5.30pm, enjoy music and appearances from local personalities whilst getting in the Christmas spirit.

Once again, St Helen’s Square will host the St Leonard’s Hospice ‘Light up a Life’ Christmas tree. This tree bears hundreds of twinkling lights, each representing the life of someone special, and raising funds for this local charity at Christmas.

The tree, which also plays an important part of York’s Christmas Festivities, will be switched on at the York’s Christmas Light switch-on, on Thursday 15th November at 6.30pm, but will also be illuminated at a very special dedication Carol Service in St Helen’s Square on Sunday 2nd December, 6:00pm – we love to see you there.

See everything that is happening at Christmas in York.
